Full description for OpenStreetMap
OpenStreetMap is a map of the whole world that can be used and edited freely by everyone. In a Wikipedia-like open community process, thousands of contributors world-wide survey the planet and upload their results to the OpenStreetMap database. Unlike some other mapping systems on the Web, the tools and the data are free and open. You can use them and modify them as you require; you can even download all the map data and run your own private map server if you need to. This book introduces you to the OpenStreetMap community, its data model, and the software used in the project. It shows you how to use the constantly-growing OSM data set and maps in your own projects. The book also explains in detail how you can contribute to the project, collecting and processing data for OpenStreetMap. If you want to become an OpenStreetMap mapper then this is the book for you.
